Bicycles

Bike transport section will be useful when you are going on vacation and you are in need of transporting your vehicle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bike online and you ought to move it home. Another common reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bike for shipping

The safest box which you can use to transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, especially if the bicycle has been used before, you can ship it without the container but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (such as bicycle chain). If you do not have original package, try to acquire a box that is the most fitting in size and shape – the less free space left after you place the bike in the box the better. Before placing the bike in the package, you should remove all the removable elements – e.g. lights or saddles.  After you have detached mentioned elements, it is best to store them in smaller container or at least wrap them in cardboard and secure the elements to the bike frame. Furthemore it is best to wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble foil (the layer of bubble wrap should have at least 2 cm. All of the protruding elements (such as gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. Any empty space remaining in the box after putting the bicycle in should be filled with cloths, bubble wrap or sponges. Filling the free space will help to reduce jostling during shipping as the bike will not be able to move around in the container. The last step is closing the container and securing it with wide tape. 

If you would rather hire a transport provider to transport the bike, you don’t need to provide the materials required to secure your bicycle for shipping – the transport provider will be able to do that for you. Additionally, the transport provider usually can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that the bicycle will be transported with maximum care.
